Kanpur: The Uttar Pradesh government has
sought credentials of a private doctor, who had first examined
a 12-year-old sexual assault victim here and suspected that
she was pregnant.
"The health department has sought details of Dr Abha
Mishra`s medical career, her registration number and degrees.
It has also inquired that whether there is any complaint filed
against the doctor," Chief Medical Officer Dr A K Mishra said
Dr Abha was the first to medically examine the victim,
who died later at a hospital, and suspected that the girl was
pregnant after seeing blood and a lump of flesh at the spot
where the minor was sexually assaulted, saying it looks as if
this was a miscarriage.
Later, rubbishing the doctor`s statement about
pregnancy, CB-CID in its inquiry report confirmed that the
minor was sexually assaulted and died of excessive bleeding.
The CB-CID has filed a chargesheet against Piyush
Verma, son of the manager of Bharatiya Gyan Sthali School
where incident took place, in the case and claimed that semen
found on the clothes of the victim was of him.
The incident occurred on September 27 when the
12-year-old victim, a fourth standard student of Gyan Bharati,
was sexually assaulted within the school premises.
The state government has also suspended Station House
Officer of Kalyanpur Anil Kumar for illegal detention and
falsification of records, Additional Superintendent of Police
Lal Bahadur and deputy SP L Mishra for acting against the
provisions of public conduct rulebook. An FIR was also
registered against the SHO.
